I set up a still life in my studio to try to paint in the style of Laura Robb, whose workshop I'll be taking in a little over a month. I've studied her paintings, bought the colors she uses and tried to familiarize myself with some of the concepts she will address. Her style is so unlike mine, yet I'm drawn to it. And I don't want to feel like a total novice when I paint with her. I'll be trying a few more arrangements similar to this one to ready myself for her class.

I used a lot of paint on this painting. Having come from a watercolor background, thick paint is not in my nature. I enjoyed making this happen, but also know it'll take a while for me to get used to squeezing this much onto my, new, larger palette.
